FO Four Twisted Headbands

I have been over run with knitting these last few week, and still have so many more to finish. I did kick my butt into high gear yesterday with starting AND finishing four twisted ear warmer headbands.

FO Vintage Knitting

I finished it!!! Don's sweater, it's finished! Granted the project isn't quite complete yet. Allyson is in the process of writing up duplicate stitch charts for team logos so she is using this sweater as a guide. I mailed it off to her to complete that and add the custom leather buttons.
Love this neckline!

Black Thursday Thanksgiving

With two toddlers, nothing is ever easy. Especially holidays. When we are at other people's houses, our kids turn into mini Godzilla's and have to get into everything they aren't supposed to. At both Adam's parents' and my parents' houses, they have open stairways to their upstairs. This proves to be the most hectic area of the house for me. Both Nolan and Ryenn spend the majority of their time here trying to get up those stairways. They must think there are these hidden treasures up there or something.

FO Baby Cowl

The last part to Annie's order was a baby cowl. She wanted something that could be pulled up over her bitties head. I remember seeing the perfect pattern for such a thing!

Another FO Headband Earwarmer

Like I said, Annie added to her order once we talked on the phone. One addition was a headband earwarmer. I like to make these because they are simple and look amazing! I was excited to make this because I decided to add a button detail to the flower in stead of the bobble it called for.

FO Baby Legwarmers

Insanely busy is an understatement for my life right now. I am trying to stay on top of house work, remodeling, kids, eating well, working out, homework, making Christmas gifts, and business knitting. It is proving to be a difficult feat. However, I am doing it. I have also added in some selfish projects for KAL's and reading 2 different books. I just mailed out a few different products today to Annie.

Kitchen Update!

First and foremost, don't mind the mess in these pictures (renovations don't prove to be helpful for cleaning). I haven't posted about the kitchen in quite some time (September 22, to be exact). However, we have made some progress today! Last I updated, we were in the middle of knocking out the bulkhead.

WIP Vintage Knitting

As of today, knitting is taking over my life. This is a good sign for business, but a bad sign for my projected time frames. Nonetheless, I am almost finished with the vintage baseball sweater for Don. I started the sleeves Tuesday night (after I skipped that portion to work on the button bands). I don't have much done on the sleeves yet (or at least the pictures don't show the progress), but I thought I would share the gorgeous contrast of the colors. Wouldn't you know it, they are blue and red!

FO Dog Sweater #2

I know that I finished the two dog sweaters about a month ago, but I just got a picture of the second one on the dog today. I was very nervous about this sweater and how it would fit. This is mostly because I used a thicker yarn which meant I had to modify the pattern to accomodate my yarn choice.

Get to Leafin'

Fall is a time for pumpkins, cider, leaves, and everything that makes living Michigan worthwhile. This past Thursday we spent our day making gigantic leaf piles in our yard. The amazing thing about a leaf blower is how it makes a huge yard full of trees less daunting.

FO Hello Kitty

The cutest pair of pants ever! I can't get over the cute factor of these. Before I finished the face on these pants, I tried them on Ryenn and decided she needs a couple pair of these. I just told you how this pattern was a lot of Stockinette stitch, but I love the way it looks.

FO Pikachu Hat

About 2 weeks ago, I sent out my second knitted Pikachu hat. I had an order for this hat in early October and had to put it off until the end of October because of how backed up I have been. However, I finished this hat in one day!

WIP Hello Kitty!

I have so much fun creating things that are characters. Like the Pikachu hat or the Geo hat from Team Umizoomi. I received a request to make the cutest Hello Kitty pants. I was so excited to get working on these!

Super heroes and Pink Elephants!

Yesterday was Halloween and it was Ryenn's first REAL Halloween. We dressed the kids up last year but only got candy for Nolan. He didn't quite get the concept last year of trick-or-treating, but by the second house this year, he looked like a pro. It was a night of funny occurances with our babies.
